Howard Walter Heuer, 68, Valley City, ND formerly of Leonard, ND, died at the Veterans Hospital in Fargo, North Dakota on March 9, 2004 surrounded by his loving family.
Howard was born April 4, 1935 to Walter and Anna Heuer in rural Leonard. He was raised on the farm and graduated from high school in Leonard. Shortly thereafter he entered the service and served in the Army for two years. He returned home to farm. Later he began trucking and worked at Rustad?s for over 35 years. He married Emmelene Trader at the Bethel Moravian Church on June 19, 1976.
He loved driving truck and if he wasn?t out there, he was itching to be on the road. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed going to casinos. Sunday afternoon meant driving around with his daughters looking at the wheat fields. Howard?s family meant the world to him and he was especially devoted to his grandchildren.
